    A star-studded cast of readers present unabridged tales of horror and suspense from Stephen King's classic best-selling short story collection.

    Walter says: "Great short stories!!"
    "Good stories"
    Overall

    I liked the stories and even the baseball essay even though I'm not a baseball fall. The reader of "Umney's Last Stand" was spot on while the one for "Rainy Season" sounds like she's on helium.

    Ten-year-old Jamie Matthews has just moved to the Lake District with his Dad and his teenage sister, Jasmine for a 'Fresh New Start'. Five years ago his sister's twin, Rose, was blown up by a terrorist bomb. His parents are wrecked by their grief, Jasmine turns to piercing, pink hair and stops eating. The family falls apart. But Jamie hasn't cried in all that time. To him Rose is just a distant memory.

    Story

    An absolutely wonderful, touching story. The characters and emotions are terribly real and you are completely drawn into their world. David Tennant reads beautifully, more subdued than for other books, embodying the heartbreak and joy in this family's life.

    Story

    Rilla Blythe, youngest daughter of Anne, is almost 15 in 1914. As her brothers and friends prepare to go off to battle, the irrepressible Rilla realizes that she will be changed forever and the world will never be the same.

    Richard Dodsworth says: "Best book Iv'e heard"
    "Book good, narrator not so much"
    Overall

    This used to be one of my favourite entires in the Anne of Green Gables series. I still enjoyed the story of young Rilla Blythe growing up during World War 1, although some of the pro-war sentiments now bother me. However I found that the narrator's vocal affectations and mannerisms sometimes got in the way, calling attention to themselves and, thus, detracting from the story.
